Homemade playdough is a great gift to give and a great craft for antsy kiddos at Thanksgiving time. Getting the meal ready and watching the kids can be really stressful with lots of family activity going on. Break out the playdough...I guarantee even the teenagers will join in.
3 cups of water
3 cups of flour
3 Tbl of oil
6 tsp of cream of tarter
1.5 cups of salt
Mix it all in a big pot until it starts to come together and look like a big ball. Turn out onto cling wrap. Let it cool for several minutes and then play away!
Let your children help make it so they feel they have helped with this special gift.
To wrap mine I used parchment paper and red and white baker's twine. The little flower is made from two mini cupcake liners and a button. You could easily add a cookie cutter. Don't forget to attach the recipe!
